of this morning's "washington journal" on the second inauguration of president obama. john in new york, an independent. caller: the c-span coverage of the inauguration was quite excellent. i have a comment and a question to you know, social studies teachers teach the development of democracy in america. we have jacksonian democracy. then we have lincoln and reconstruction. we have the progress of era and the new deal, and more. is this the age of obama and democracy? host: what to do you think? caller: he talked about inclusion and diversity, but how subsidizing public housing has not been on the agenda at all -- there are a lot of minorities. i live in public housing and i am and minority. i live in harlem. we have been invited to washington to work and issues with public housing and what happened was, through obama, i have to confess, they tried to twist our arm. what happened is there is a demonstration that will be in a couple years. all subsidizing housing throughout the country, including section 8 in multi- family dwellings, and it gives the right of the fall -- a gives for-prof

of the united states, and on the other, john adams is no more. that celebration, the union and be out, -- the unit in the out, that is what we are looking for, the relationship. you can look at these inaugurations as touchstones along our national narrative of the changes that have taken place. some of them are technological. the question of george washington writing in a carriage, somebody else in a car, the introduction of radio, television and the internet to record these things -- there are different steps along the way to record, but a continuity -- a kind of reassuring continuity that is important for holidays. you know that thanksgiving in our houses like this. we serve mashed potatoes this way. we have our inaugurations this way. there is very much the same kind of spirit. i pulled a few simple things to give you a sense of the taste and feel of inaugurations. one aspect of inaugurations really from the very beginning is the inaugural ball. these are celebrations in which this candidate, now president, is introduced to the public thomas as well as celebrations of everybody com
the speech. something we'll be discussing later with john lewis. it's an added emotional contact. >> absolutely. the civil rights movement created the possibility for barack obama to become president and i think he's ever mindful of that. i think that's where that community organizing comes in him. he knows that communities create the power. you think about the gay rights movement, the civil rights movement, the women's movement, this is all part of who he is and i think it's part of american history. when i look at american history, those movements are critical in transforming our attitudes about ourselves and about one another. and that's where real change takes place. lincoln said, you control public sentiment, controls everything. even if they can't control my voice. >> sometimes when historians try to speak too much in the course of one inaugural weekend, this is what happens. we're going to allow doris rest her voice for a second. you saw when we were talking a motorcade and you'd be forgiven for thinking there's the president on the move from the white house. it was not. f
'll have it live for you here on c-span2. yesterday and today johns hopkins university in baltimore has been hosting a summit on reducing gun violence. speakers have included new york city mayor michael bloomberg and maryland governor martin o'malley. this afternoon at 4 eastern they will hold a news conference to release their recommendations for stemming gun violence. we'll have live coverage here on c-span2. again, that will be at 4 p.m. eastern. >>> and right around this time to have year every year governors address their state legislatures on the state of their states. laying out the priorities for the new year. tonight at 7:30 we'll take you live to the kansas statehouse for an address by the state's governor, sam brownback. that'll get underway at 7:30 eastern. >> he had been talking about this dream that he had had. he had talked about it for years, you know? the american dream. and that had become his dream. and he had been in detroit just a few months before, and he had talked about, you know, i have a dream that america will someday realize these principles in the deck decla
of relationship with john boehner, say, where we can feel optimistic that they're going to have a very different kind of relationship but can actually be more effective? >> i think there's a different kind of dynamic that speaker boehner has to deal with. i don't know him personally, but his reputation is that he can get deals done, but then he has to sell them in a caucus, some whom, a minority, but a vocal minority of whom are very rigid indeed. so i think the speaker has an opportunity to show his more magnanimous leadership and to lead the whole of the house, and not just his caucus. and as he does that, i think his relationship, not just with the president, but with the general public will improve, and i hope it does. >> one of the issues he's going to face is gun crime, gun control, gun violence, generally. he's been generally audacious in terms of the proposals he's put forward. there's a reality check within minutes of him doing so. people have been queuing up from both sides of the senate and saying look, he may want an assault weapons ban but he's not going to get one. lom like the whi
lie. it's friday, january 18. >> from abc news, this is "world news now." >> good morning. i'm john muller in for rob nelson. >> and it is friday. >> friday. we made it. tgif. >> yes. armstrong said he was driven to cheat by a ruthless desire to win, saying it never felt wrong, he never felt bad about what he was doing and still didn't seem to be terribly contrite during that confession with oprah. we'll have the complete confession in a moment. first, a look at some of the other stories we're following. including escape from algeria. five americans held hostage by terrorists. they're now safe. but for others, the danger is not over. a lot of questions as to how many people remain, how many were taken to begin with. so definitely a situation that continues to evolve. >> very fluid situation there. >>> also ahead, changing the meaning of home. the new nontraditional way which homes are growing and families are expanding. >> fascinating. especially for those that are thinking about taking in their parents, maybe. >> i think the extended family is a good thing. bring it back. >> i plan

of a news conference at johns hopkins university. that is live now on c-span2 that has been underway for about an hour. we will try to go to carl in vegas, nevada. the house is about to come in. make it quick. caller: i want to talk about gun control. they do not need a gun that they can shoot and kill someone from 5 miles away. it does not help them. they do not need to go out and hunt with a game -- a gun like that. they keep it for one reason only -- so they can protect themselves against the government. that's what it's all about. host: "the new york times" editorial today weighing in saying the white house has a rare chance to propose and pushed through an agenda for public safety. the assault weapon ban should be renewed and tightened with a special emphasis on those that hold more than 10 rounds. offered by our chaplain, father conroy. chaplain conroy: let us pray. god of the universe, we give us thanks for giving us another day. the people's house gathers today and celebrates in its gathering the wonder of our constitutional form of government. our nation has once ag
. and that is not the case here. the president and the family will walk over to the st. john's church and the church of the president as it is so often known for the first family before the inaugural swearing in and then the parade and then the ball, and ten of them four years ago, but just two, and still pretty good ones this time around. >> peter alexander from the white house, and of course, we will come to you back later in the show. right now, let's go to the south part of the mall there, luke russert. what is going on there? >> well, there is a concert that was four years ago and replayed for the folks who might not have been down here, and we are seeing the 6,000 national guard troops mobilize ed fd for the e and the 4,000 district of columbia police officers joined by 2,000 of their friends from around the country. there is a heavy security presence, but not as much as last time, craig. because we expect 500 to 700,000 people here and last time it with was 1.8 million and more sort of room to breathe, and that is what the organizers said, they want the people to walk around and see the mall

faithfully. >> when chief justice john roberts administered the oath to barack obama on january 20, 2009, there was a major problem. roberts was supposed to say "i will faithfully execute the office of president of the united states. " barack obama stopped and paused and smiled as if to say, come on, man, this is my big day. you have to get this right. unfortunately, he did not get it right so the very next night in the white house, they did it again. this time roberts used notes which he had not used the first time and they got it right. >> we walk for the history of democracy's big day monday at 8:00 a.m. and again at 8:00 p.m. eastern. this is part of a three-day holiday weekend on c-span 2's book-tv. >> the greatest honor history can bestow is the title of peacemaker. this honor now beckons america, the chance to lead the world at last out of the valley of turmoil and onto that high ground of peace that man has dreamed of since the dawn of civilization >> must embark on new programs, scientific investments and the improvement of underdeveloped areas. >> of this weekend, public radio'
will hear from a constitutional law professor adam winkler. from the johns hopkins school of public health in baltimore. this is about 20 minutes. >> he is certainly one of the great emerging voices, insightful and influential of the nature of the meaning of the second amendment in the wake of the supreme court's decision, so thank you for joining me in this effort. i want to thank the organizers, everyone from the president down to staff that has organized a terrific and hopefully impact full conference. i am not going to talk with any power. as a law professor i do not like the focus on anyone but me. i am here to talk about the amendment to the constitution and what it says about major reform proposals being considered in the wake of the new town massacre. as you probably know, the second amendment provides a well-regulated militia being necessary to the security of a free state, the right of the people to bear arms shall not be infringed. it is almost as if james madison just discovered this wonderful new thing, the comma, and wanted to put it in there as many times as possible, and is
. this is an intelligent minister cartoon showing john mccain in the white house trying to stir pan iranian revolution. they understand bending the truth. do they think that affleck was mocking their president but looking like him? i'm being silly. the problem is that history is usual written and movies usually made by the victor. but what happened in 1979 when the americans stormed the embassy that still ain't over. the iranians take this too seriously. >> for the american movie telling a story from an american point of view. >> a real movie "argo" about a fake movie "argo" is being remade because the iranians say the real movie about the fake movie isn't true. you couldn't make this stuff up. actually you could. it would be a great movie. i'm nick watt for "nightline" in hollywood. >> you can teach a rhesus monkey to be a director. >>> this morning robin roberts appeared on good morning america to share exciting news. >> i can begin the process of returning to the anchor chair. i'm coming

before noon, president obama took the oath of office at the white house. chief justice john roberts lead the official swearing in. it was over in less than a minute. vice president biden took his oath early this morning. the constitution requires the swearing in is on the 20th of january. because the day fell on the weekend, they'll do it again for the public tomorrow. >> one of the many inaugural parties going on tonight is at the historic theater. >> bruce johnson is live at the historic landmark. >> reporter: hey guys, first off congratulations to the ravens. a lot of fans inside there and a lot of people glued to their smart phones watching the game as they were partying for barack obama and paying tribute to the late dr. martin luther king. a lot of people inside old enough to remember martin luther king and the 1963 march year of the washington. you want to start an interesting conversation. ask this well-educated well- connected crowd. what was more important, the first time barack obama was elected. first african american president or the fact that he was just real. let's go insi

things like john, when i open my locker this morning, three lockers down, 47, there is a handler that guns sticking out. john, don't say anything, but there's a drug deal didn't go down in the back of the gym today. john, there's going to be a rumble. here's that were going to do. we think, we believe school resource officers can play an important role, but you should have significantly more flexibility in how to use them. that's why proposing a new school safety program that funds officers, but also tastier communities the flexibility to apply for other support. so the school resource officer is going to cost two x thousands of dollars a year with the money the federal government is pretty not. you can say we'd rather have a school psychologist for my school resource officer who was unarmed. but what we don't want, the president and i., we don't want to rent a cops in schools armed. we don't want people in schools who are trained at police officers. we are not even insisting schools use police officers if they conclude they need a school psychiatrist versus a school resource off
